The Bluebird Network fiber optic infrastructure connects to the Bluebird Underground Data Center, a Tier 3, SOC 2 Type 2 certified data center. Our location 85 feet underground eliminates common vulnerabilities and risks associated with above ground locations including lack of visibility from Google Earth & Street View and on-site personnel monitor the facility and support systems year round. All critical infrastructure required to run the facility are placed underground including generators, chillers, transformers, network access and other components, providing immunity from weather extremes, such as tornadoes, lightning and hail. The combination of Bluebird Network’s network fiber and the Bluebird Underground Data Center’s inherent protection provide the convenience of a single provider for both transport & colocation.
